Artemis Selene

The Queendom of Artemis Selene is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 593 million Artemis Seleneans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moonlight City. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Artemis Selenean economy, worth 58.0 trillion Moonstones a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,808 Moonstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Artemis Selene's border, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, and private law firms are unheard of. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artemis Selene's national animal is the Dianaean Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Artemis Selene is ranked 99,993rd in the world and 4,280th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -48.17 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
